In a message to tech@, Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) gives an update on the state-of-play regarding processor vulnerabilities:
Two recently disclosed hardware bugs affected Intel cpus: - TLBleed - T1TF (the name "Foreshadow" refers to 1 of 3 aspects of this bug, more aspects are surely on the way) Solving these bugs requires new cpu microcode, a coding workaround, *AND* the disabling of SMT / Hyperthreading.
